Thimphu get much need snow fall.

I have been expecting that something would happen in a day or so when the cloud covered the Thimphu valley for couples of days..and indeed a sign of snow fall, the rain continued to hit the town for two days and surprisingly when i peep through my friend's windows this morning i saw Thimphu have been covered in whitish color. As i look carefully it was Snow and .. the people waiting for months have finally to celebrate the fall of snow in Thimphu. A usual things that happen everyday.

Indeed it's good to have snow but would be even great if it had lasted for a day or so, but as the people and vehicles began to move .. the glimpse of snow was just short, it did last for hours at night but at around 9 am in morning the snow begin to vanish and melt. A sign of change in global warming.

A Updated on the Changlimithang Ground for the 100 years monarchy celebration and the official Coronation of fifth King His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuk. The work seems to make a steady moves as i got few clips today ... the Main ground is been dug for the grass transplantation and other works in side by side.

A sad for the Cricket lovers and all fans around that the Small ground which is adjacent will be used during the construction of the Stadium and visitor stand. Indeed a sad one .

hey, that's alright if the guys cannot play cricket, at least the ground will be renovated (hopefully). are there no other pitch than the little stretch of land beside the changlingmethang for cricket players?
nice pictures...and sad to hear about the snow fall. a sure sign of Global Warming and climate crisis.

I find this very interesting, because Bhutan is a long way from us here in Canada - one of my friends is teaching English in Bhutan right now so I've been very curious to learn more about your country!
